    I help manage a local bar, and we have issues from time to time pouring different beers (mostly the Belgian beers). Could anyone give me some advice on what level I should keep the Co2 at for different styles?

    I'd ask the distributor for this information. While there are guides that will put you in the right ballpark for a given style, many brewers have pretty specific recommendations for their beers.
